The Peace & Neutrality Alliance (PANA) was established in December 1996 in Dublin. Membership is open to all groups and individuals that accept five objectives. PANA seeks to advocate an Independent Irish Foreign Policy, defend Irish Neutrality and to promote a reformed United Nations as the Institution through which Ireland should pursue its security concerns. PANA opposes the decision of the Irish political elite to integrate Ireland into the EU/US/NATO military structures. It would seek to ensure that peace would be achieved through a process of inclusive dialogue throughout the world, similar to the process that was pursued via the Irish peace process. PANA would seek to ensure the dissolution of NATO through a similar process of negotiation.
